Summary
 

The use of used tyres as fuel is comparable to fossil fuels combustion, contributing to the green house effect. Thus new ways of recovery and recycling are needed. This project has successfully contributed to reduce the impact of tyres wastes treatment using scraped tyres as filler for road embankments.

The main objective of this project has been to demonstrate the technical and market viability of a new use for grinded tyres, developing a new marketable product with no need of any kind of thermal or chemical treatment. The real innovation of the project is the modification of the design parameters in order to substitute natural soil by synthetic fillers. The result is a new lightweight, environmental friendly, filler for road embankments that avoids the demand of foreign soil in the case of the presence of clays or non suitable soil for road construction on work sites.
